The Balwyn Community Centre Child Care is registered to care for up to 25 children each day aged between six weeks old to five years. We provide occasional care within a safe and nurturing environment. This page outlines the benefits of occasional care and what to expect when you choose Balwyn Community Centre Child Care.
The Benefits of Occasional Child Care
Occasional Child Care provides a unique child care service. It is centred on creating an individualised, nurturing experience for your child within a smaller Centre and with qualified, passionate staff. At Balwyn Community Centre, we offer short, flexible sessions that can be purchased on a casual or term-by-term basis.
For parents, the flexible hours of Occasional Care allow them to meet work-related and non-work-related commitments. It also gives them a much needed break from the hustle and bustle of being a parent! During those few precious hours of Occasional Care you might choose to clean the house, run errands, attend a doctor’s appointment, or even have your hair done. Regardless of what you choose do, the short break that comes with Occasional Care can do wonders for your health and wellbeing.
The Balwyn Community Centre Difference
Our staff are what set Balwyn Community Centre apart! All of our staff are qualified and hold a Diploma in Children’s Services. Gayle, Shini, Lizzie and Linda have many years’ experience working with babies, toddlers and young children and work well together to create a safe and nurturing environment. They take pride in their position as a carer for your child and take the time to get to know each child one-on-one.
The nature of service can be quite different in larger child care centres and children may benefit from a smaller group and more personalised child care environment. We’re very proud at Balwyn Community Centre to have a small, tight-knit team who have each worked with us for a number of years. Parents report that they feel connected to Gayle, Shini, Lizzie and Linda and trust that their children are in good hands when they leave.
Your Child’s Experience
From drop-off to pick-up, your child will feel safe in our caring, nurturing environment. The child care program at BCC fosters creativity, friendship and play. During each session your child will:
- Learn how to share and work together as they socialise with other children
- Discover the joy of books with group story time and one-on-one reading
- Play games that focus on learning, team work and fun!
- Make new friends with children from all different backgrounds
- Listen to music and be encouraged to sing and dance
- Get outside and get active in our adventure playground and sandpit
- Eat a nutritious morning tea of fresh fruit
If you have further questions you’re more than welcome to call the child care office.
